Movies Like The Proposal

Romantic Comedies are always a solid pick if you become tired of action or horror-filled movies. Everybody and their mother likes a good romantic comedy no matter how much they say they don’t. A good romantic comedy movies list is hard to come by, however, as they all tend to be pretty generic and cliched most of the time. The Proposal stood out to us.

Maybe it’s just because we have a biased towards Ryan Reynolds though. Regardless, we really did like it and would guess that you did too if you are here. So, if you’re looking for movies like The Proposal, then look no further! Go grab your popcorn and blanket and get ready for a night filled with romance and comedy!
